1987 - Ein Flyer der "neuen" BTS mit Philips gibt Einblicke ....

Die Robert Bosch AG Stuttgart holte 1986 Philips mit ins Boot, weil dieses Boot bereits bedenklich schwankte. Dieser kleine Flyer gibt Einblicke, wie zwei Produktfamilien zusammengeführt werden mußten. Zur Einstiegsseite hier klicken.


Weiter geht es mit deutschen Produkten aus Darmstadt


Die BCN Videorecorder ist 1988 immer noch !! im Programm

Die BCN Scanner-Technik wurde von Arvin/Echo "übernommen". Sie wurde nicht geklaut, wie es damals oft hieß, denn sie war weder geschützt noch patentiert. Das Knowhow war 1973/74 von deutschen Ingenieuren "reverse engineered" worden. Diese Scanner-Technik hatte aber 2 Schwächen (gegen über vielen Stärken). Die BCN-Laufwerke konnten normalerweise weder Slow-Motion noch schnellen Vorlauf oder schnellen Rücklauf.

Ein Fernsehbild war nämlich auf zwei nebeneinander liegenden Spuren aufgeteilt und das mit SlowMotion ging dann alles erst mit dem (damals recht teuren) Halbleiter- Bild- Zwischenspeicher (für über 60.000 DM Aufpreis). Die späteren C-Format Maschinen von Ampex/Sony (ab 1977/78) hatten ein gesamtes (vollständiges) Bild auf einer Spur und konnten das alles Dank SONYs Piezo-Schwabbelköpfen von Hause aus - jedoch auch wieder mit anderen Macken.


BCN 52/53 VTR

The BCN 52/53 which has been developed by BTS (bereits in 1974 !!) combines for the first time the well known advantages of the B format with equipmentfeatures, which up till now were not possible with segmented recording.

Continuous operation from slow motion to normal speed can only be achieved in other formats with the aid of moveable heads and the drawbacks that this entails - short head life, limited duration for still frames.

The BCN 52/53 makes it possible, by using the latest storage technology, to cover a continuous slow motion range from 0.25 reverse to normal playback speed forwards, without reducing the excellent B format head life.

The bandwidth of the buffer store used guarantees high picture definition when the transition to slow motion is made. As still frames are stored electronically they can be displayed for an unlimited period of time without tape demage.

Another new feature is separate video head monitoring, which is included as standard. It enables the picture quality to be assessed during recording. The extra video heads considerably increase the system's operating reliability, as the second pair of heads takes over playback in the case of a breakdown.
• Slow motion range from 0.25 reverse to full playback speed forwards-with high resolution
• Visible search in black/white, up to 12 times normal speed forward and reverse
• No playback time limit on electronically stored still frames

BCN 41/51 VTR

Thousand's of BCN 41/51 Stationary VTR's are in operation worldwide and have proved their reliability in million's of working hours. Headlife of up to 14.000 hrs has been reported, proving the low operating cost of the system. This "work-horse" will remain part of our product line beside the new products.

DVM Digital Vario Motion (Digital Video Memory)

A BCN 51 DVM unit with its associated accessories provides VTR technology with valuable production aids.


  • Anmerkung : Was hier so fast nebensächlich eingefügt ist, war ein Marketing- Politikum und das war damals sehr teuer. BTS mußte den Ampex/Sony Entwicklern Paroli bieten. Um mit einer BCN Maschine Einzelbild (Standbild) oder Slow Motion zu machen, mußte eines der beiden Halbbilder zwischengespeichert werden und die dafür notwendigen RAM Module kosteten (damals) fast 60.000.- DM. Professor Hausdörfer hatte mir die ganze Story erzählt. Man brauchte dafür den dritten Einschub ganz unten in dem fahrbaren BCN 51 Rahmen und der Kunde sollte 100.000.- DM Aufpreis berappen. Dafür bekam man fast die ganze Ampex 1" Maschine. Ob die Japaner wieder mal gelächelt hatten ?


BCN 21 Portable VTR

Technological progress and, of course, the requirements of the BCN users led to the new-generation portable BCN 21 series.

The FDL 60 has many features that make it superior to conventional film scanners.

The FDL 60 is a telecine without tubes
It uses new generation long life CCD line sensors eliminating burn-in and lag problems. Each frame is scanned only once, line sequentially and without deflection voltages, so field flicker cannot occur and the vertical resolution is absolutely constant.

The result is first class picture quality with high resolution, excellent signal to noise ratio and brillant colour rendition allowing even those red hues to be faithfully reproduced.

Capstan drive and digital signal processing provide entirely new operational modes
Slow motion and fast motion, forward and reverse, and freeze frame are all in excellent quality. Finding scenes or single frames is made easy by the variable programmable search facility and step mode - with full format colour pictures. Start and stop are instant and frame accurate and the deck can handle film lengths up to 1200 metres.

The FDL 60 dramatically reduces costs
The digital signal processing needs no maintenance and the CCD sensors are free from wear with typical semiconductor reliability and operating life. Forget about drifting circuitry, expensive tube changes and line up problems.

FDGR Film Grain Reducer

The film grain reducer reduces the visibility of film grain noise. It is a fully digitised unit with an ECL-interface for the in- and outsignal. In principle the FDGR is a recursive filter with a frame store. A part of the output signal is fed back to the input. The ratio of the direct signal to the delayed signal defines the grain/noise reduction. An automatic circuit, measuring the input noise as well as the movement in the picture signal, optimises the signal to noise ratio and prevents smearing and lag effects at moving pictures.
